Assembly Technician

Job Details

$55,000.00 - $60,000.00 Salary/year



Our mission is to decarbonize the "hard-to-abate" heavy industrial sectors of the world economy with a new class of electrolyzers. Advanced Ionics is seeking a highly motivated technician to join our growing team that is dedicated to developing transformational “green hydrogen” industrial electrolyzer systems.

As an assembly technician, you are responsible for building, debugging, and validating complex test stations and electrolyzers.  The electrolyzers are steam fed, high electrical current units to produce hydrogen.  As such you will install steam and gas tubing, and electrical controls for controlling chemical flow, data collection, and thermal management.

You’re the right candidate for this job if you enjoy workplaces where everyone has a voice, if you’re passionate about solving climate change through complex and turbulent markets, and if you’re willing to propose a new idea, write a memo, code a script, and turn a wrench.

What You’ll Do

  • Following CAD drawings, you will assemble frames, route tubing and electrical wiring.
  • You will wire control cabinets following electrical schematics.
  • You will debug and validate the test stands and their components, and record results.
  • Compare test results with design specifications and with test objectives and recommend changes, if needed, in products or test methods 

What We Offer:

      This is a full-time position

      Competitive, negotiable salary

      Vesting options for equity in a venture-backed, climate-tech startup

      Health, dental and vision benefits, with flexible options

      Generous vacation policy

      Paid parental and sick leave
